there is we have what we think is a diverse economy. we have a knowledge center in our education areas much like states like california and we were pretty good at job creation at the time he got sworn into office. and he immediately dropped us from 47th out of 50. and in the end that really doesn't surprise you. because when you look at the business experience he taughts. it had nothing to do with creating jobs it had to do with helping investors. i can tell you in my region of the state, which is the south coast area south of boston. our major initiatives he was awol in terms of working with legislatures, so job creation did not occur when he was governor. and when someone else succeeded him, we have come back to that we're ahead of the terms of the rest of the country right now in job creation. there is more to go nationwide and even in our state. but in massachusetts i know we don't want to go back and one of the things that is proof in the pudding is mitt romney never campaigns for president in massachusetts. [ laughter ] >> it's no accident that it is not a battle
debate performance. >> absolutely. the economy is starting to very slowly and tentatively heal. i think things are slowly getting better. but there is not a go-go economy. >> jennifer: right. the bloomberg -- there was a surprise index issued by bloomberg today which says that the economy is improving more than professional forecasters had predicted. let me talk about the book. plutocrats. can you define that? >> i use it to talk about people at the very very top of the distribution, the 0.001%. that in the united states the threshold is making more than $7 million a year. >> jennifer: and the danger? >> two things. first of all to say to people you know, wake up the gap between the people at the very top and everything else is bigger than it has ever been in america. you know, it has -- it is touching the levels it touched in the guilded age. >> jennifer: and implications for the economy? >> the implications for the economy are -- i actually think we don't know for sure yet but what is to me more interesting and more important are the implications for politics.
the ayatollah sees. he sees his economy being crippled. the ayatollah sees 50% less exports of oil, he sees his economy going in a freefall, and he sees the world totally united in opposition to him getting a nuclear weapon. the president has met with netenyahu a dozen times. i was in -- just before he went to the un i was in a conference call with the president -- with him talking to netenyahu for well over an hour and stark relief of what was going on. this is a bunch of stuff -- >> what does that mean? >> biden: it means it is simply inaccurate. >> ryan: it is irish. >> biden: it is. the secretary of defense has made it -- you can't walk anything back. we will not allow the iranians to get a nuclear weapon. what netenyahu held up there was when they get to the point where they can enrich uranium enough to put it into a weapon. they don't have enough to put it into a weapon. iran is more isolated today than when we took office. sit totally's a littled -- [overlapping speakers] >> ryan: thank heavens we had these sanctions in place. it is in spite of their opposition --
a response except unchecked fox news might turn it into, quote unquote, fact. the retail is this the economy is headed in the right direction, and that -- and that sadly is a fact you can trust. for some actual analysis and perspective and context, we are going to turn to laura tyson who is the former chair of economic advise source and we are excited because you also current tv's economic advisor. thank you so much for joining us inside "the war room" again. >> thank you jennifer. >> jennifer: so tell me what is your perspective on jack wellish's theory that the bureau of labor statistics is cooking the books? >> it's utter nonsense and it is a charge against some of the most dedicated loyal people in government who spent month after month year after year doing serious statistical work and he is calling their reputation and credibility into question based on nothing. i was responsible for getting those numbers. we got those on a thursday evening at a certain time when the federal reserve got them we had essentially a very short time to analyze them, and write a report,
. i want to encourage the economy to grow again. >> so you're repealing obama-care but keeping the good parts of healthcare, social security and medicare for seniors and you're going to build more submarines and destroyers than the pentagon wants, i want to ask you a question. are you a wizard. >> i'm not going to layout a piece of legislation here. >> we can't wait to walk you through all the details math point by math point. there are some tricky--sasquatch tricky--sasquatch. sasquatch, you come here! you come here, no, no, yeti. >> hi there, it's a trolley. it's on the way to the neighborhood of make believe. that's where me and paul ryan get most of our facts from. >> the combination of limiting deductions and credits and exemption as well as the growth of the economy will make up for the reduction rate. >> i mean, do you have a royal family. >> yes, it's called the romneys. >> ha, ha, ha. >> eliot: as joe biden practices for his debate, we'll talk to the person who helped him practice for 2008. currentttttttttttttttttttttttttt nah, he's probably got...

talking about today? are they still talk about differences on job, on economy, on health care? uh-huh. no. no. no. the number one issue that has taken hold more written about, more spoken about more than any other issue is big bird. yes, indeed. we remember mitt romney pressed to say, okay now look you say you are going to cut all of these programs. let's get real. give us one example of programs you are going to cut. >> romney: i'm sorry, i'm going to stop the subsidy to pbs, i like big bird, i actually like you too. >> bill: oh boy. it's so stupid just so stupid to lay that out there. this has been a classic republican attack line going way back. i remember when newt gingrich was speaker his number one issue, number one issue as speaker of the house of representatives was to cut all funding for pbs and big bird and all of the rest on sesame street. it never went anywhere. and you know why it's not going to go anywhere? because big bird is too popular and doesn't cost much money. if you are alive, right? you know pbs and enjoy pbs, if you have ever had kids o
more organized. but it is an uphill climb because the economy is so tough. it's an uphill climb especially after the debate there was extra local attention on that debate. there was so much residual coverage of that in the local media here that president obama's performance and mitt romney's performance played an especially huge role. >> jennifer: you think because of the local coverage coupled with the national coverage you got really saturated? >> that's absolutely right. it wasn't just the national story, it was local radio and television, and there was a before and after on all of this. >> jennifer: there still is. we're still talking about it too. so tell us about the mood of the conservative -- i know you have a radio show where you have a lot of conservative listeners so i assume they are feeling their oats for mitt romney? feeling really good? >> here is what is worrisome, i sense that the enthusiasm is on romney's side. the organization is on the democratic side, but there is a lot of enthusiasm, not necessarily for mitt romney but for the idea
glue this presidential election. we know that. jobs and the economy is still going to be the deciding issue. it is what impacts most people in this country. it's what most people are concerned about. holding on to their job and house, making it through this sluggish economy as the economy does of course continue to improve under president obama's economic plan but yesterday mitt romney gave a foreign policy speech. that's what most of the news is about this morning. he gave the speech at the virginia military institute. i always get a chuckle over the fact whenever republicans want to appear tough and give a foreign policy speech, where they say we're going to run over anybody who looks -- that we don't like basically, anywhere on the planet they always go to some military school usually peter down in south carolina this happened to be in virginia because they know they are going to get a willing audience of little cadets in their uniforms who say we're going to bomb cape town. yay! [ laughter ] >> bill: then we're going to bomb paris. yay! so any way he got tha
business. we can't be in the service economy, we need to create jobs, make things with our hands. back to manufacturing. back in virginia where i live, the clothes textiles, furniture mills, they're sad. let's build wind turbines facilities. >> gavin: the challenge is people go where the costs are month modest. i think you're right. the cheap china being the thing of the past, and the cost of robots that they're building the iphones and other things, but what about the manufacturing, the value equation for manufacturing in america, still not necessarily where we need to be. there is a legacy cost, sirs as you say, health and pension it's not a race to the bottom but how can we bring manufacturing back? >> president obama has strived--he has had good manufacturing plans. congress has not been a willing ally, which i think is crazy. we're the greatest country in the world. technological, we're so far advanced. let's take the kindle, taiwan came in and bought the whole company, moved the entire operation to taiwan. if you buy a kindle, it's all made in taiwan, something that was designed
the economy. >> stephanie: and here is mitt romney. >> romney: when i'm president of the united states -- [ cheers and applause ] >> romney: that unemployment rate is going to come down not because people are giving up and dropping out of the work force but because we're creating for jobs -- >> in china. >> -- and get america working again. >> stephanie: the first part of that once again was a lie. [ bell chimes ] [ applause ] >> stephanie: just saying. okay. helen in fairfax, virginia. welcome. >> caller: did you get a chance to see george step november louse? >> stephanie: no. >> mary -- every time she started to speak to him she always ended up saying professor, dr. krugman. and i wondered if it was a way to put down people are a lot of education. >> you aren't the boss of me. >> when is it pejorative to call a person a professor. >> stephanie: yeah. welcome on are on the "stephanie miller show." >> caller: they have talked about education during the debate. and he would take the federal idea and send the title one funds and send it to the poor so they could choos
. >> eliot: what does that mean? the sanctions are crushing the iranian economy. their currency has been devalued dramatically. there is currency internally. what other sanctions could we impose? >> there is not much. once obama agreed to sanctions that was one. then he said the u.s. should arm syrian rebels. that's not what he said. he said the u.s. should work to organize the rebels so that they can be armed by others. that's identical to the obama administration position. >> eliot: and it may be happening. those are the covert efforts that may be running through iran saudi saudi arabia. >> they are. >> eliot: they don't want to publicize them. but jon, let's go to you. you have been in iraq. you heard what romney said we should be doing differently in iraq. how does it strike you. you had boots on the ground, tell us your reaction. >> i was shocked. he some how thinks he could have done differently in iraq. we were being bounded by the militia, supported by iran. we can build the hardware of democracy but it does not mean that we'll win the election. fringe elements of the militia las
's economy. and they soon joined us in nato and became in aggregate the largest economy in the world. why is this odd? we all love the marshall plan of course. because what was the marshall plan the 2008 stimulus at a different time. but large enough to do the job. how can mitt romney praise the marshall plan if he is so disdainful of the stimulus. what was wrong with the same concept in 2008? the $26 billion or so spent on the marshall plan is roughly the same as the $787 billion stimulus of 2009. the marshall plan was about 2% of our gdp, the stimulus was just a bit more and given the $2 trillion plus in production lost during the crisis, so have an effect as profound as the marshall plan the stimulus would v been even larger. the attacks by mitt romney ring hollow once the rhetoric is gone. romney understands that the marshall plan was critical to the recovery of europe and so to was the stimulus plan for our bounce back in 2008. so if it was good enough for europe in 1945 and worked for us in 2008 maybe romney should stop with the fake criticism. like too much el
everything in my power to strengthen once again the american farm the family farm strengthen our economy. >> eliot: but as romney spoke a plane flu over head that said crack down on wall street not sesame street. they are trying to exploit romney's promise to end government support with public television with that banner and this ad. >> big yellow a menace to our economy, mitt romney knows it's not wall street you have to worry about it's sesame street. >> romney: the president is spending his time talking about saving big bird. i'll spend my time talk about saving jobs. >> eliot: eric fehrnstrom seems to think even less. ann romney and tag staged an intervention to help save mitt romney's campaign. but fehrnstrom would have none of it. >> i saw the story. it's a silly little story. there's no truth to it. we're focused on big things. >> eliot: for more let's go to ken voguer and tricia rose. ken, i have just got to start with you, your big scoop here. called meaningless, picky, small, petty. somebody changed mitt romney for the better at least politically. why are th
served their time. they're tax-paying citizens credibilitying to the economy and many are veterans and they should not be prevented from voting. >> cenk: a lot of republicans will turn around and say democrats, they want criminals to vote and that's why they want the criminal vote. that sucks. that's ugly, but it might be politically effective. how do you get beyond that? >> first of all let's consider who we're talking about. half of these people, as you point out are non-violent drug offenders. are we to say that for the rest of their lives, which is the law in many states, for the rest of their lives they're barred from voting? and is anyone deterred from committing a crime because they won't be able to vote for four years after coming out of prison? i don't think that will deter anyone. iceland, a country i just visited which has a low incarceration rate compared to us. in iceland and many european countries, not only can inmates vote, they can vote while in prison. they're encouraged to vote. why? they encourage them to remain connected to their community. they're still citize
to trust obama on the economy. that represents little change from the last poll when obama held the advantage over mitt romney. but you are right, jim, it is amazing to the degree that one debate has changed just incredibly disastrous campaign. there you go main stream media, fight. fight. fight. >> yeah, exactly. mraus >> stephanie: i'm getting confused on which conspiracy did i cook the job numbers more or the polls. oh, look, it is the john and pam show, everybody from ohio. ♪ from ohio, it's the john and pam show ♪ ♪ it's the john and pam, john and pam, john and pam show ♪ >> stephanie: good morning, john and pam. >> caller: good morning, everybody. >> caller: good morning jim and chris. i am so mad. how dare him stand up in front of those military flags and give a foreign policy speech. the only thing that man knows foreign is his bank accounts in the caymans. reran away from war. and he wants to stand up? that man is going to put us in another war, and these people better wake up that support this idiot, and vote him out before he even gets in. >>
're going to destroy our economy." not true! ♪ >> announcer: heard around the country, and seen on current tv. this is the "bill press show." >> bill: all right. thirteen minutes before the top of the hour. off the politics for just a second here. it has been a little over two months now since curiosity landed on the planet mars has been very, very busy since then. looking at rock samples, collecting dirt samples -- soil samples on mars. how are things going we want to check in with dr. beagle at nasa's jpl lab out in california. joining us very early this morning, but luther you really operate on mars time right? >> yes, and it is a 24 hour 40 minute day. >> bill: so what time is it on mars now? >> i do know i have an app for it on my cell phone, but i'm talking on it so it's hard to tell. >> bill: okay. is curiosity doing the job you expected it to do? >> yeah it has operated flaw >> bill: tell us about -- we know rocks on earth. are these the same kind of rocks that we have on earth. >> no, see there are all different types of rocks we just found on mars. the rock we
. if all of those things expire in a weak economy you are talk about deep budget cuts and tax increases at a pretty difficult time. >> jennifer: you are a great watcher of congress and you know human behavior and when they approach go over a cliff, it is not going to stay there. but i want to talk about what john boehner said . . . so do you think that baner is bluffing? >> you talk about human behavior, and that includes individual not always strong humans like john boehner. we have a couple of possibilities here let's face it. one we end up with something like the status quo. then they are going to have to deal with obama for the next four years, and the numbers don't make a huge difference. there is more of an incent dividend to cut a deal or at least say we're going to put it all often for a couple of months. but if romney wins they are going to say why should becut a deal with a lame duck president? let's wait until january. so the likelihood of a deal depends very much on the outcome of the election. >> jennifer: totally. but how can you get a deal, whether
? the best thing i can do is immediately get a boost in this economy. >> jennifer: the question is -- this is advice with how to deal with student loans. >> right. >> jennifer: how effectively is that of a sell -- and you have -- and if you can answer kind of shortly, because i want to make sure i hear every word of it. >> i understand. i assume the young woman got no comfort from that response. president obama has increased pell grants by 50%, has put $2.5 billion in historically black colleges cut out the middle person, and now deals direct. mitt romney has no record in these areas, and president obama actually does. this is a woman the student, possibly one of the 47% who the governor was just criticizing because she is a student may not be paying federal income taxes, but in his own words is working three jobs. he is just phony. >> jennifer: we're talking on the day before the big vice presidential debate. >> yeah. >> jennifer: the president is going to have another chance with mitt romney next week. but you are good friends with the vice president. wh
that number. >> it's not an excuse to talk down the economy and score a few political reports. >> this is manna from heaven. >> do you worry you've offended the 47%. >> it's not elegantly stated. >> obama: my opponent has been trying to reposition. >> it's completely wrong. >> obama: he said he would eliminate funding for public television. thank goodness someone is getting tough on big bird. we didn't know that big bird was driving the federal government. >> cenk: great numbers unelement has fallen to a 44-month low to 7.8%. it used to be at 8.1% so we're finally below 8%. 114,000 jobs have been added and the july and august numbers added moreobobhich happepe all the t time.im thisthss gat gewatew foror america. more people back at work. so of course the republicans are celebrating right? of course not. no way. they're panicked over it. oh, my god this is going to cause us this election. dammit, i can't believe more americans are working. now go to unbelieving. unbelievable jobs numbers. these chicago guys will do anything. can't debate, so change numbers. that's ironic comin
that is affected very negatively by the economy jobs, education this is a population that will inherit the country's leadership. i think it's really important that we get in there now because it's a very strong american issue. >> gavin: the focus of the vote latino is to register and have voices heard or is it more than registration. >> when we first started we did our first campaign. utilizing our contacts with mtv getting celebrities and doing awareness around registration and getting out the vote. we wanted the organization to be yearlong and luckily we found ouring executive director and we've been able to grow the organization around so much more. we just finished having our first summit series, which was remarkable. we had 300 students coming up learning everything from social media, voteer registration. it was so amazing to see cross- cross-generation talking. we did a town hall on immigration. co-hosted with lawrence o'donnell. that was remarkable. it was really touching to have a dreamer on there with someone having an conversation. it was pretty big. we've been all over. we've been able

important to understand that hispanics are just like any other american. they care about the economy, jobs health care but when they feel attacked they are going to -- and what really want to register and vote. >> jennifer: absolutely. people get mad -- >> yes. and that's what is happening. >> jennifer: romney said before the debate to the denver post that he would support the president's giving work permits to young illegal immigrants and then just after the debate his staff walked it back immediately. is this -- >> that is very unfortunate on his part. in so many ways they have a message that could resinate with hispanics. they are entrepreneurial, many come from countries where they don't want the government involved. >> jennifer: the catholics -- >> very religious. thank goodness they keep making the mistakes. >> jennifer: there is an assumption on the part of the republicans that latinos don't vote. there was an "washington post" article that said the number one myth about latinos is that latinos don't vote. >> that is a myth. and you have to understand it
economy. it just didn't work out that way. the reason why they were having problems was because of the mortgages defaulting. we weren't fixing the core problem. tarp was supposed to help troubled asset release. when congress voted for it, they thought they were voting for a program that would help prevent unnecessary foreclosures. what we ended up doing was a capital investment program. in 2008 i could understand because we were in a crisis situation. but even going into 2009 when the system was stable we never did much to help homeowners and kept bailing out the big banks. >> cenk: i can understand it if the treasury secretary was a former chairman of the goldman sachs. >> i don't ascribe to that. i think it's their world-view and perspective. but when i participated in the 2008 program it was my understanding we were going to have a very aggressive foreclosure prevention program. the bush administration never launched it. again they were still focused on the big banks. unfortunately when the obama people came in the focus remained on the big banks. >> cenk: so when president o
